CPE Dean’s Address We made it through 2020: Happy New Year! As I write this letter in November, who knows how life will shift by the time you read it. 2020 was a year of loss, deep reflection and triumph. It is my belief that 2021 will be a year of harvest. When people think of harvesting, they usually think of things being plentiful. However, harvesting is hard work. It consists of reaping, threshing, cleaning and hauling. We are in a season of continuing the grueling work of social justice and uprooting racism. As a country and as social workers, we have faced some hard truths. Especially contending with the reality that our profession has roots in upholding systems of oppression and still does in some aspects. We are far past the excuse of not knowing. Even if you have not made the connections, ignorance is no longer a defense. In this time, we all have to take what we've learned and commit to putting it into practice. We do this by following our Code of Ethics, being political, and committing to challenging the system - not upholding the status quo. Below are some workshop highlights to do just that: • Education, Family Engagement, and the Growing Latinx Community • Merging Macro Skills with Clinical Practice: How to Engage the Community as a Clinician • Studying the Dominant Identity: Seeing White Podcast Deep Dive • Reimagining Public Safety: A Panel Discussion There are many Social Work champions who have been doing this work. May they continue to serve as examples and lead the way. As always, we thank you, our alumni and friends, for your continued support. We are always open to receiving feedback and suggestions. In fact, many of our workshop ideas come from our participants and their evaluations. We look forward to learning with you this semester and always.

Sincerely, Seanté A. Hatcher, LCSW-C Assistant Dean Office of Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

Now imagine a non-profit receiving a half a billion dollars annually and year after year making little to no progress—what would happen to their funding? Join this panel as they discuss ways to reimagine public safety and redistribute funds that could potentially change public safety outcomes. They will also discuss what social workers can do to chart new paths that will not only keep children and families safe, but also support them in thriving. Moderator: Bobby Marvin Holmes, LMSW, Son of A Dream Panelists: Ako Changa Onyango (Fusion Partnership), Dayvon Love (Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle), and Dr. Bridal Pearson (Director of the Human Services Administration at University of Baltimore)

Merging Macro Skills with Clinical Practice: How to Engage the Community as a Clinician Date: Wednesday, March 31, 2021 Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Speaker: Shawna Murray-Browne, LCSW-C Free; CEs: 1.5; $20 From the micro, mezzo, to the macro, there are common elements, processes, and skills that exist across social work. However, due to the dichotomous nature of the social work education, we tend to forget this fact. Please join the conversation as we wrap up Social Work Month by highlighting the threads that run through the sub-groups and emphasizing the necessary skills to really address Person in Environment in a clinical setting.

Who are Community Health Workers and How Can Social Workers Work Most Effectively with Them? Date: Friday, April 9, 2021 Time: 1:15 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Instructor: Julie Smithwick, LMSW, CHW Cost: $65; CEs: 3 Community Health Workers (CHWs) are trusted individuals from communities that oftentimes face high health and social inequities. CHWs help individuals navigate resources, connect to needed services, understand and improve their health conditions, advocate for their needs, and address community challenges by building on strengths. Over the last few years, CHWs have started to become integrated into care teams at clinics, assigned as liaisons with schools, and hired at community organizations to provide outreach and advocacy. Social workers and CHWs can work together to best support individuals and communities, but a more thorough understanding of the similarities, differences, strengths and potential challenges of these relationships is needed in order to work effectively together. This workshop instructor is both an MSW and a CHW and will give insight into who CHWs are, what they do, and how to facilitate a positive working relationship.

The news media always seem to be reacting to the latest racial “incident,” while pundits ponder “race relations” year in and year out. The premise of this series is that the American conversation about race and the stories we tell ourselves about race and ethnicity are deeply incomplete and often misleading. We need new stories and new understandings about [American] history and our current racial and ethnic reality. (Scene on Radio, 2016) Scene on Radio is a podcast that tells stories exploring human experience and American society. Produced and hosted by John Biewen, Scene on Radio comes from the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University and is distributed by PRX. In Season 2, the Peabody-nominated Seeing White, Biewen and collaborator Chenjerai Kumanyika explored the history and meaning of Whiteness. 6


UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK

This podcast will be used as a framework and a conversation starter around the issues of race; specifically, Whiteness. Race is overly analyzed, but rarely do we look at Whiteness. The conversation will extend into how the use of race affects you—individually, professionally, and systemically. How does the use of race impact your work and worldview? With affinity groups we will interrogate and challenge beliefs and move to tangible action plans. Each week participants will be expected to listen to two episodes of the podcast, Seeing White (season 2), and be prepared to discuss. Week One: Thursday, April 1, 2021 Episodes 1: Turning the Lens and Episode 2: How Race was Made Week Two: Thursday, April 8, 2021 Episode 3: Made in America and Episode 4: Crazy We Built a Nation Week Three: Thursday, April 15, 2021 Episode 5: Little War on the Prairie and Episode 6: That's Not Us, So We're Clean Week Four: Thursday, April 22, 2021 Episode 7: Chenjerai's Challenge and Episode 8: Skulls and Skin Week Five: Thursday, April 29, 2021 Episode 9: A Racial Cleansing in America and Episode 10: Citizen Thind Week Six: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Episode 11: Danger and Episode 12: My White Friends Week Seven: Thursday, May 13, 2021 Episode 13: White Affirmative Action and Episode 14: Transformation

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS Online Financial Social Work (FSW) Certificate Program March 2021 – September 2021 Apply at: www.ssw.umaryland.edu/FSW Deadline: January 31, 2021 CEs: 45; Cost: $1,200 UMSSW’s Financial Social Work Initiative (FSWI) is launching its online version of the Financial Social Work (FSW) Certificate Program through UMSSW’s Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Office in March 2021! It will meet an identified need for greater financial capability and empowerment knowledge on the part of social workers who practice in non-profit and other social service agencies, in schools, medical settings, justice and court settings, and beyond. In FSWI’s work and research over the past 10 years, social workers and human service organizations have expressed a significant, ongoing need for financial social work (FSW) training and skill-building strategies to enable them to intervene appropriately and effectively with financially distressed individuals, families, and communities. Beyond providing resources, however, social workers must have sophisticated knowledge about issues in typical daily financial life, such as credit, debt, budgeting, and working towards identified financial goals. Social workers who work with clients on their complex financial struggles and how these intersect with other psychosocial stressors must be knowledgeable about and familiar with financial issues and behaviors and feel comfortable in addressing these directly and effectively. From a macro, policy perspective as well, social workers who work within FSW must also be well versed in historical and current policy issues that influence and affect people’s paths towards greater financial stability; conversely, those policies that hinder financial stability and/or that perpetuate economic injustice must also be understood. The FSW Certificate Program will run over multiple sessions from March 2021 to September 2021 and is worth 42 CE credits. The online formatting design of the FSW Certificate Program will enable rich class discussion and learning through interaction among the macro and clinical practitioners from across the nation. Besides key educators, the program will feature guest speakers from this important, emerging areas. In addition, 3 hours of ethics content will be included and will go towards satisfying requirements for ethics CE credits.

These experiences can come from outside of the family, such as a natural disaster, car accident, school shooting, or community violence; however, trauma can originate from within the family, such as domestic violence, physical or sexual abuse, or the unexpected death of a loved one. Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences. How an event affects an individual depends on many factors, including characteristics of the individual, the type and characteristics of the event(s), developmental processes, the meaning of the trauma, and sociocultural factors. The impact of trauma can vary from subtle to outright destructive behaviors. The journey in understanding what happened is complicated, but it is the clinician’s duty to appropriately assess and treat trauma without causing additional trauma to the client in the process. Moreover, due to the many symptoms of trauma, it is important to measure the effectiveness of any treatment. The Certificate in Trauma Treatment with Children and Adolescents consists of an evidence-grounded and narrative-based model applied to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment methods. Social workers and other mental health professionals from a variety of clinical settings encounter Register for workshops online at www.ssw.umaryland.edu/cpe | 9

This will be accomplished through experiential learning activities, feedback, and coaching. The structure of the course was created with the working professional in mind, using a variety of teaching methods, including a combination of lecture, visual aids, practice exercises, and discussion. Participants’ MI skills will be assessed prior to the first class and after program completion. This will provide participants with a concrete measure of their MI skill development from start to finish. With content covering topics from Core Concepts to Managing the “Mandated Client,” this program is appropriate for social workers with a range of prior MI knowledge and experience. Additionally, with sessions on ethics, supervision, and leadership, this program contains information relevant to social workers in direct practice or administration and management. To maximize individualized feedback and coaching opportunities, space is limited to select number of participants and only those enrolled in the program will be permitted to participate in the sessions.

200 The Intersectionality of Sexual Assault for Women of Color: Sexual assault against Women of Color has historically been an attack against not only their identities as women, but also their racial identity. Research indicates that Women of Color are often at elevated risks for sexual assault and that their experience of sexual assault is usually made more complex by factors such as race, socioeconomic status, and lack of culturally appropriate services. This presentation will connect the historical sexual assault of Women of Color and its implications for how society responds to Women of Color survivors today. Friday, February 5, 2021; 9:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.; Live Interactive Webinar; $65; CEs: 3; Instructor: Teresa Stafford, Inspiring Change, LLC 201 Healing Wounds for Black Women & Their Children: With the increased acceptance of mental health treatment in Communities of Color and particularly among Black women, it is essential that clinicians are aware of some of the reasons for their hesitation to accept therapy, especially play therapy as an effective way to heal their past hurts and trauma or those of their children. The purpose of this training is to assist Play Therapists with identifying what interpersonal and intergenerational trauma is and how both ultimately affect Black women in the therapeutic setting. This training will assist play therapists with ways to overcome potential barriers so that treatment is more successful. During these three hours, participants will learn not only how to identify trauma but be able to identify interpersonal and intergenerational trauma that has impacted and continues to impact African Americans in the United States. During this time, we will also explore interventions and activities that can be used to promote play therapy with Black women to not only heal themselves, but also to assist with healing their children.

The disclosure of an affair is among the most devastating and painful experiences that couples face. It is also one of the most challenging and complicated problems encountered in therapy. This workshop will examine various forms of infidelity, the impact of its discovery on each spouse and the marriage, and issues of recovery and treatment. Some of the challenges encountered in treatment include how much information about the affair should be disclosed; how to help with shattered trust, hypervigilance, and anxiety; and how to build empathy between the partners. Some important insights that have been gained in understanding and treating infidelity and affairs will be reviewed.

Trauma is a universal experience that every human being endures at some point in their life. Some individuals sustain multiple traumas, and some of these become so pervasive and acute that they manifest in the form of PostTraumatic Stress Disorder. This workshop will focus on understanding the concept and the theory of what trauma is and how individuals can grow and thrive despite their trauma narrative. Different theories will be explored, but a particular focus will be on strength-based theories to help clients build on, or acquire, resiliency concepts that help them to reshape and reform their trauma narratives from that of victim to that of survivor. A myriad of treatment modalities will be explored, including strength-based theories, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and art therapy. Friday, May

207 Art of Deep Empathy: Empathy is one of the therapist’s most

important—and sometimes most taken-for-granted—therapeutic tools. Yet, it’s often misunderstood, both conceptually and in terms of application and technique. This workshop will clarify what empathy is (and isn’t), how to achieve a deep empathic connection, and the two distinct modes of verbally empathizing: the conventional “You” mode and the more specialized “Identification” mode. It will also demonstrate special applications of empathy to deepen the therapeutic process with couples and families. Participants will have the opportunity to practice the specialized identification mode of empathy. Wednesday, June 16, 2021; 9:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.; Live Interactive

of the published resources around tele-mental health focus largely on providing care to individuals. For many that serve couples, families, and facilitate groups, there is a collective realization of the difference in needs, assessment, communication, and engagement when providing support to more than one person simultaneously from a distance. Through live instruction, polling, and a live Q&A, we’ll compare HIPAA-secure platform features that allow for multi-point connection; review key terminology; explore single-point versus multi-point advantages and challenges; and review engagement techniques, insurance adjustments, ethical concerns, and online group guidelines when serving multiple participants.

Supervision is the balance of providing both opportunities and challenges while maintaining a positive and safe professional relationship. This balance requires a firm foundation of appropriate boundaries and information sharing about the process of supervision. Supervision is a complex process that entails a multitude of roles and responsibilities. Roles are the functional relationships between supervisor and those of the supervisee; responsibilities include the clinical, ethical, and legal duties of the supervisor. This highly interactive workshop will assist participants in developing the important skills necessary for becoming a competent and effective supervisor. Use of real-life case studies and role-playing provide the participants with opportunities to practice strategies to bring about positive outcomes for the supervisor and the supervisee.

✺2007 Creative Approaches to Supervision: Both Individual and Group: A social worker who assumes the role of supervisor has specific obligations. A supervisor is responsible for the quality of work that is performed by the supervise, they must be competent in the areas they provide supervision, and they are responsible for assisting the supervisee in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively with their clients. That doesn’t stop the supervisor from using creative approaches during both individualized and group supervision. Participants will learn ways to keep supervision interesting while still instilling the knowledge necessary to become a successful independent practitioner. Wednesday, June
